The American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles presents WHAT MAKES A CARTOON CARTOONY: AN IN-PERSON TRIBUTE TO JOHN KRICFALUSI, September 7 – 8, a two night event with the creator of the landmark 1991 TV series, “Ren & Stimpy.” The first night is a retrospective
of animator Kricfalusi’s work, including an uncensored episode of Bakshi’s “Mighty Mouse,” “Boo Boo Runs Wild,” commercials, webtoons and some brand-new, no-holds-barred “Ren and Stimpy” cartoons with NAKED GIRLS
made for Spike TV. Also included is “Stimpy’s Pregnant” – a not ready for prime-time episode showing the birth of Ren and Stimpy’s first child.

The second night, Kricfalusi presents the classic cartoons that inspired him. These are the greatest cartoons ever made! Clampett, Fleischers, Jones, Avery, Lantz and Terrytoons. John will introduce the films and tell how they inspired him. You will laugh! Followed by question and
answer period. Both evenings will be followed by a discussion with John Kricfalusi, plus an opportunity to meet some of John’s cohorts on the opening night.
